For eighteen days ever since he set on this pilgrimage, Dr Dhariwal has been accompanied by his wife, the charming Chandralekhaji, their 80-year-old aunt Maggi Bai Bothra, Sangeetaji Bothra and Nirmala Dhariwal.

Two posts ago, we spoke about Dr Dhariwal’s final pilgrimage in his worldly life, since he is using this opportunity to visit many Jain ascetics whom he may not be able to meet once he renouunces the world (on Nov 6th).  Jain ascetics always travel by foot, and with a group. The Guru generally allots the number of ascetics who will travel together within a specified region. Therefore, once a person embraces monkhood, his travel automatically gets restricted.
